By day, Universal Resort in Orlando is awash with bright colours, smiling faces and sweet treats. But by night, it’s a different story. During Halloween Horror Nights you’ll come face-to-face with some of your worst nightmares. Think clowns following you with revving chainsaws, meeting the cast of the terrifying American Horror Story in real life and having gruesome zombies from The Walking Dead jump out at you. An evening spent at the Halloween Horror Nights means braving nine bone-chilling haunted houses, trying to avoid being spooked by creatures in the scare zones, and watching live gory shows. Warning: this event is not suitable for anyone under the age of 13, and is seriously scary.
If you’re in the mood for something slightly less intense, then Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party is right up your street. Pop your favourite costume on, and get ready for the most magical place to spend Halloween. Watch Mickey’s “Boo to you” parade, featuring Disney characters, marvel at the firework display, where all of the Disney Villains go trick-or-treating in the sky, and explore some of the Happy Haunted Houses which are a little more friendly than Universal’s.
The Kids’ Club & Creche at MarBella Corfu has something a bit different planned this Halloween. Instead of the usual archery and arts and crafts, your little ones can enjoy a whole host of ghoulish games. There’s Killer Karaoke, Skeleton Swimming, Frightening Football as well as a bunch of other spooky activities like fancy dress, face paints and pumpkin carving. And it’s not just fun for the kids either, grown-ups can take part in a Terrifying Afternoon Tea, which is scarily tasty.
Halloween season sees this Spanish theme park transform into spooksville, with brightly-coloured lanterns and monster parades. Make sure you don’t miss the pumpkin sculptors, the chance to explore secret passages to mystery locations and, if you’re feeling brave enough, the frightening Halloween show performed on the gloomiest lake in the park. And for the younger crowd, you’ll get to meet some familiar faces from Sesame Street, such as Elmo and the Cookie Monster, dressed in their best Halloween costumes.
It’s not a coincidence that Terra sounds an awful lot like terror – and with a tagline of “come if you want…get out if you can” there’s a reason to be terrified. Take part in an assault course, with the added bonus of undead zombies chasing you, as well as catching some exclusive shows and horror films at the 5D cinema, where spooky scents and textures made the movie a whole lot creepier. While you’re queuing for rides and shows, keep an eye out for spooky character Lilith the Vampire Queen – legend has it she’ll cast a terrifying spell on you whilst she dances.

Marbella Corfu Hotel might have spooky activities going on this Halloween, but its facilities are anything but scary. With a private beach, an infinity pool and five restaurants to choose from, it’s definitely more of a treat than a trick.
Sonesta ES Suites is on International Drive, which means getting to both Universal and Disney is easy. And when you’re not busy whizzing around on rollercoasters, you can relax at the hotel’s palm-fringed pool or in their colourful garden.
Hotel Flamingo Oasis is only a 15-minute walk to the beach, with a lagoon pool and an adults-only bar – a million miles away from zombie chases and Vampire Queens.
